Hay fever

Ironically today my Hay fever was absolutely horrendous from the moment I woke up, faced with the streaming nose and sore itchy eyes I've come to expect every summer. It's so fitting then that I ended up in a hay barn. Today after a long week of clouds and overcast weather we finally had some beautiful sunshine in Kent late in the afternoon.

I do get asked a lot how I find my picturesque locations and I must say I am extremely blessed to live in the most beautiful place- Kent. Lots of the time I might just go for a walk or jump in my car and stumble upon a pretty field nearby.  

I'll be driving around in my car with the music blaring, see somewhere, screech the breaks and just 'know'. Sometimes I'll see somewhere that looks like it might be a brilliant place and something will just tell me to keep going a bit further on...and ta da! I'll come to it! That's exactly how I found today's location. I found it by chance thanks to a rare combination of sheer spontaneity and a little bit of magic! 

I've been waiting to bring you also the beautiful and incredibly talented Paige Joanna's 'Buttercup' zine. It arrived a week ago and I fell in love with it from the very first page. I heard and saw so much about it from her blog and fellow bloggers such as Kailey from Mermaidens. I am huge fan of Paige's blog and her illustrations are simply beautiful and I just couldn't resist getting a copy and supporting her work. You are transported and taken back to a time of innocence, sweetness and childhood nostalgia. 

It really took me back to being a 90's kid and all the things we used to love to do 'when we were young'. I will say though I was so sad when I got to the last page, I didn't want it to end!

  17. Hay fever is the worst, mine always seems to play up in Spring (which is a shame because it is my most favourite time of year). But you are so incredibly lucky to live in beautiful Kent! The countryside there looks gorgeous, and I cannot wait to plan another trip to England just so I can visit some of the beautiful country-esque towns it has to offer :)

  19. I don't know how you managed to stay in that hay long enough to take your photos...I would have passed out from my hayfever haha!! Kent seems beautiful, maybe I'll venture out of London one day and decide to have a peek. Hope you're well! :) xx
